    Man... If I was facing a trip like that; I'd be looking for a beef jerky sponsor.

    Don't forget a Sirius or XM radio...Or one hellava iPod library.

    And... a notebook to keep track of opossum pizzas, coon coasters, snake slicks and other assorted "obstacles" Add a section for flashes; categorized by state and 1-10 ranking:)

    In your bio, you state that you are an ex convict. If you don't mind me asking, what were your charges?:cool2:

    I'd be willing to bet your right, although I doubt in the same time period of 1 year, 100mi per day is a lot of miles. lol
    No, I don't plan on mowing grass for gas, although I plan on putting a standing offer to mow each capitol building lawn as I travel through each state.
    I don't mind you asking, I have been convicted of several crimes in the past, they stem from a very messy divorce, as to why it is stated in my bio, as it says, I believe a person can try to make up for their past. I also believe that I am trying to do some good in this world and that hopefully I will be able to make up for a little of my past. We have all did things wrong, but we can also work on making things right.:)

    I think I heard Paul Harvey mention your trip. He said you were having lots of mechanical problems? Or is that someone else that is driving a riding lawnmower across country?
